Best hotels in Doha by popularity

This list includes all hotels with the highest ratings from tourists, from 3-star to 5-star hotels. The list is dynamic and up-to-date as of the day you’re reading this article.

Hotels in Doha with pool or private beach

For those who don’t know, Qatar is a Muslim country, and it’s not allowed to wear bikinis or swimwear on public beaches. You can only do so on private hotel beaches, but these aren’t available everywhere. If your goal is to have a beach vacation in Qatar, choose a hotel with a private beach.

Budget hotels in Doha for short stay

If you are in Qatar for 2-5 days and would rather explore the country and stroll around Doha instead of relaxing by the sea, it’s better to choose hotels in the city center. It’s worth noting that there are no beaches in the center of Doha, not even public ones, so those who want a beach vacation stay on the outskirts of the city or in the suburbs.

Below are some Doha hotels that are located in the city center, near the main attractions of the capital. This is a much more important criterion for transit tourists. There are budget hotels with high ratings from foreign tourists and good location.

In conclusion, Qatar is not as expensive as it seems. Looking at these Doha hotels, you realize that there are good options for as little as $30 a day. And a room in a world-famous chain hotel like Ritz-Carlton is not more expensive than in Europe, and sometimes even cheaper, and many can afford it too.

There is accommodation for every budget in Qatar, but at the same time, there are no hostels and very few apartments with kitchens, which is a Qatari peculiarity.
